An item song in Prakash Jha’s films is a must. He believes item songs in his films does not halt the story of a film but moves the plot forward.
Television actress Barkha Bisht will be Raajneeti’s item girl. Barkha, who shares a long-distance marriage with her husband Indraneil Sengupta, shot for the song last week, she danced to a sizzling track Ishq Barse Hai Boondan Boondan choreographed by Bosco-Ceaser.
Barkha is really excited these days. Says Barkha,
“The item song in Raajneeti is my big-screen debut. I chose to start my film career with a dance because I’ve been on reality shows on television and have the confidence to carry it off. Also, this is a big film. And I will be noticed. Better an item in a big film than a lead in a film that no one will watch.”
Prakash chose Barkha since he decided to go with an absolutely fresh-faced girl who can dance. His daughter Disha made the final selection.
